Wonderful Joan Armatrading song: "Down to Zero," 1976



"Uploaded on Oct 16, 2009, From the best of Joan Armatrading"

"Down to Zero" was first released in 1976. (John Kerry's Dec. 2015 "down to zero" CO2 statement in Paris reminded me of this song: "If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissionsremember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions -– it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65% of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world."...)

.........
You step lightly thinking you're number one
Down to zero with a word
Leaving
For another one
............
Now you walk with your feet back on the ground
Down to the ground
Down to the ground
Down to the ground
Down to the ground
............
Brand new dandy
First class scene stealer
Walks through the crowd and takes your man
Sends you rushing to the mirror
Brush your eyebrows and say
There's more beauty in you than anyone
..............
Oh remember who walked the warm sands beside you
Moored to your heel let the waves come a rushing in
She'll take the worry from your head
But then again
She put trouble in your heart instead
Then you'll fall
Down to the ground
Down to the ground
............
You'll know heartache
Still more crying
When you're thinking of your mother's only son
Take to your bed
You say there's peace in sleep
But you'll dream of love instead
..............
Oh the heartache you'll find
Can bring more pain than a blistering sun
But oh when you fall
Oh when you fall
Fall at my door
.............
Oh the feeling
When you're reeling
You step lightly thinking you're number one
Down to zero with a word
Leaving
For another one
...................
Now you walk with your feet back on the ground
Down to the ground
Down to the ground
Down to the ground
Down to the ground
..................
You'll know heartache
Still more crying
When you're thinking of your mother's only son
Take to your bed
You say there's peace in sleep
But you'll dream of love instead
...................
But oh when you fall
Oh when you fall
Fall at my door"
